Rice Cream Flakes
From: Nabisco
Introduced in 1968

Rice Cream Flakes were rice flakes coated in freeze-dried ice cream. The cereal was test marketed in New York where it was well received. Unfortunately, Nabisco wasn't able to secure enough freeze-dried ice cream to bring this product to the national market. There were very few producers of freeze-dried ice cream at the time, and Nabisco's primary supplier, Oregon Freeze-Dried Foods, was going out of business.

The test-market box for Rice Cream Flakes described the product as "a new cereal crunchy as a cone!". There was a vanilla variety, a chocolate variety and a strawberry variety. We suspect that cereal also came in an orange flavor, but we've been unable to uncover visual proof. If you have any additional information, please post it below.

I remember getting this cereal in a little general market in Roscoe, NY when I was a kid. We all loved it, and were disappointed that it never hit the market in NJ where we lived. I have often wondered if I really remembered it correctly, until I saw this page. Thanks for the memory!

The best cereal EVER. I remember it kept going up in price, and the box was literally only half full. When my mother saw that, she refused to buy it any more. I wish they'd bring it back, now that I'm in control of groceries! It was just amazingly good.

Greatest cereal ever. It was only available for a short time when I was a kid. It was expensive and came in tiny 6 ounce boxes. Wish it was around today.

Didn't they have a commercial that went "I scream for RICE CREAM FLAKES" and then "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"? I remember singing the jingle as a kid... and it sure made me want the cereal!

I was in the national commercial produced for this cereal, and I recall it tasted great (what kid wouldn't eat ice cream for breakfast?). Alas, as written above, it never launched nationally and neither did the ad campaign!

I wanna try it too. I voted for just because it's seems like a really great idea. Come on cereal companies... bring back this concept!

Wow, I really wish I could have tried this. Why don't they make it again? Seems like with new technology that freeze-dried ice cream should be a lot easier to come by now. Wishful thinking.
